Xiaoning Yuan, president of Shaanxi Energy Group commented “The 407GXP meets the Chinese market’s demand for a single light helicopter. It has exceptional performance and has been widely used in a broad range of segments including EMS, parapublic, tourism, and firefighting, among others. The gradual development of planned delivery, support, and training infrastructure will continue to promote the utilization of the 407GXP in China and provide Chinese operators with a total solution of product and technical assurance.”
